Picking a mini itx motherboard

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey I'm trying to figure out what miniITX AM4 Motherboard to buy when they get out, and it has me asking questions about power delivery to the cpu. See atm I have a z77n wifi by gigabyte which is a great mini itx board BUT it only has a 4pin cpu connector and wont let me change vCore. When I first found this out i was pretty upset (whats the point of a Z chip set if you cant change volts!!!??)


Now I'm in the same boat again trying to figure out what would be a good opion for AM4 and all the preliminary photos Ive seen has only shown a AM4 with a 4pin cpu. Should I wait till I find a board with 8 pin cpu power? should I just buy one with a 4 pin because it wont matter too much?

There are no m-itx AM4 boards officially out yet. Therefore no one can give you a definitive answer.
